Wow! Words can’t describe how impressed my colleagues and I were with our day traveling to both the University of South Carolina/Columbia and the College of Charleston. Each campus (1.5 hours apart) exuded richness in history, culture, and Southern charm. Here’s a recap- after a lovely stay at The Inn at South Carolina (owned by the school), our morning began with a campus tour of USC and meeting with CT Admissions Rep, Brett Butler (no, not Rhett!). His enthusiasm was contagious as he discussed the Honors College, popular majors (International Business, Hospitality and Tourism), Division I Athletics (Equestrian, too), and much more. We then drove to Charleston and self-toured the gracious campus set in park-like gated areas within a town of chic shops/restaurants. Popular majors include Business, Social Sciences, Communications and Visual Arts. Athletics are NCAA Division I and, like USC, include Equestrian Sports. The friendly, diverse students were everywhere in the bustling town. Note: the price tag on these public institutions is highly attractive for out of state students,USC-$29,000 and Charleston– $28,000.
